TIB AV-Portal

The TIB AV-Portal is a web-based platform for quality-tested scientific videos from the realms of technology/engineering, architecture, chemistry, information technology, mathematics and physics. Amongst other things, the videos portray computer visualisations, learning material, simulations, experiments, interviews, and recordings of lectures and conferences. A key feature of the portal is the use of different automated video analyses. The added value: these video analyses enable pinpoint searches within the video content.

The Competence Centre for Non-Textual Materials at the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB) started developing the portal in cooperation with the Hasso Plattner Institute for Software Systems Engineering, in July 2011. The TIB AV-Portal went online in spring 2014.

The TIB AV-Portal can be used to search easily for scientific videos from the fields of science and technology, and to cite and publish such videos in a simple manner. In addition, numerous videos can be downloaded, licensed or ordered on DVD.

The TIB AV-Portal focuses mainly on scientific videos from the six core subjects of the German National Library of Science and Technology (TIB):

Technology/Engineering
Architecture
Chemistry
Information Technology
Mathematics
Physics

In 2012, TIB acquired the media stock of IWF gGmbH. In addition to videos from the realms of science and technology, this stock also contains videos from the following subject areas:

Biology
Ethnology
Geological Sciences
History
Arts and Media
Medicine
Sports
Environmental Sciences/Ecology

Scientific videos mainly from TIB’s core subjects will be newly acquired for the TIB AV-Portal.

MEDEAnet webinar: Flipping the Classroom to shift from passive to active learning. An example based on LAMS

The webinar will focus on the educational model «Flipping the classroom» and the innovation that it brings to education. We will present the methodology, the pedagogy behind it, the strengths and how this new trend in educational practices, approaches the challenges of education in 21st century. Using technology to provide students “control of their interactions” has a positive effect on student learning. It increases the ability to review parts that are misunderstood, which need further reinforcement, and/or those parts that are of particular interest. LAMS could be an important factor of the flipped classroom as it can be used to provide: i) opportunities for interaction in and out of class, ii) key content for students to access at their own convenience and to suit their pace of learning and iii) immediate feedback for teachers and students.
